					   Start Take Care of Yourself as You Age
Taking care of yourself now will help slow down those aging diseases. A person can do many
things, as they get older to take care of their health. The aging process is going by each and
everyday of our lives. Stopping the clock is impossible so we all need to stay healthy and take
care of ourselves. There is no way you can turn around the process, as we grow older so except it
and take care.

You can start out by taking your multivitamins and all other prescriptions your health care
provider has prescribed to you. Taking vitamins is as important as anything else you can do is.
Vitamins will provide your body with repair tools. Vitamins will lessen the dangers and the risk of
you getting some of the chronic diseases that you can acquire as you age. Diet alone doesn’t
normally give a person all the vitamins that they need. In fact, experts show that millions of
people in the world suffer malnutrition despite the fact that they eat three healthy meals per
day. People are known to eat too much fast food, go on fads or quick weight diets that harm the
body. This builds stress, which causes loss of vitamins.

Maybe you’re a person who eats many processed foods because of your busy life style and there
is just no time to cook the right meals. You could be one that stops off at a fast food place to eat
three or four times a week before going to work or home from work because you are just to tired
to fix supper. Remember eating all that fast food isn’t good for the digestive system and all that
fat from them fries isn’t good. Take time to fix a meal and sit down to enjoy it; doing this will cut
down on the calorie intake and it helps to relieve stress because your doing something good for
you and or your family.

Stop worrying about everyone else; take time out for you. Stress is bad for your heart, which
affects your blood pressure, nervous system, and is hard in general on your body. Stress can
cause many things, even causing a person to become obese. The world is turning at such a fast
pace these days that there is never time to take care of us, so start now.

Try doing a little exercise to stay healthy as you age. Every little bit of exercise you do is better
than not any at all. An average person should exercise at least 3 times a week for 30 minutes. A
person has many options when it comes to exercise. Walking is a great exercise, since it helps
you keep those muscles more flexibly and stronger.

How happiness makes you live a longer life:
Happiness is another way to stay healthy as you age. If you are not happy find out why and turn it
around so you will be. Being happy and being with friends is always a good way to keep the stress
away to. Don’t let yourself get depressed and down; it will make your aging come upon you
sooner than you want and it can cause you to be a very sick person. Depression is a sickness and
you want to stay away from all that.

Again, there is no way you can stop from aging so stay in good health and slow it down. Keep
yourself happy, do those exercises and take those vitamins. Staying active helps keeps the stress
down, keep you stronger and you’ll feel better for doing it.
